Stylophone Beatbox

£22, firebox.com

Rolf Harris’ staple instrument of choice (bar the delightfully named didgeridoo) returns to our eager music-making hands with a few new tricks up its sleeve.

Three sound modes – drum kit, beatbox and bass stylophone – can be combined with a scratch function to mix up your aural creations before looping and recording over your delightful beats.

You can even connect the Stylophone Beatbox to your MP3 player and play along to your tunes. A Stuff.tv remix of ‘Tie me Kangaroo down sport’ is on the way.
